• World Plumbing Day to be celebrated every year... everywhere
WESTLAKE, OH, Feb. 16, 2010 -- World Plumbing Day was created by the World Plumbing Council to be celebrated on March 11 every year ... everywhere. This year, the inaugural event will be announced at a press conference in Beijing, China on March 11 as part of ISH China 2010.
World Plumbing Day has been established to help the general public better understand the vital role that the plumbing industry plays in protecting public health and safety, and the extent to which the plumbing industry helps limit mankind's environmental footprint. This day also acknowledges other important work being performed by contractors, inspectors, installers, engineers, manufacturers and academicians that is often taken for granted.
The World Plumbing Council and the American Society of Sanitary Engineering would like to see World Plumbing Day used to promote the fact that plumbing tradespersons are professionals and that these professionals have the utmost importance in protecting the environment and public health.
As a means of promoting World Plumbing Day around the world, the WPC has developed a website at: http://www.worldplumbingday.org. The information on the website has been designed so that the featured materials can be reproduced, amended and supplemented for promotional use as we lead up to the 11th day of March each year. ASSE and the WPC welcome and encourage anyone to use the information on the website to help further the popularity of this day.
World Plumbing day is about raising awareness. The World Plumbing Council and the American Society of Sanitary Engineering request that everyone do what they can to promote World Plumbing Day and raise awareness of the important role that our plumbing industry plays every day ... everywhere.
The American Society of Sanitary Engineering has been a member organization of the World Plumbing Council since its inception and many of ASSE's members have served as officers and board members of the WPC. ASSE has played an integral part in the development of the council's objectives and in the creation of World Plumbing Day.
